Extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, 5-acre farm in the middle of Mt Pleasant! This beautifully designed, custom-built horse farm is adjacent to Oyster Point off Rifle Range Rd and includes a beautiful 1 bedroom/2 full bath, 1000 sqft caretaker's cottage; 2752 sqft custom barn with five 12' x 14' stalls; 180' X 150' riding arena with professional-grade GGT (German Geo Textile) footing and drainage system installed by East-West Arena Construction; five impeccably maintained, rotated pastures with large run-ins; and two chicken coops. A thick buffer of trees surrounds the property making it very private. The property was designed and built with a focus on pasture and arena drainage, which is often overlooked on farms in the Lowcountry.The owners prioritized drainage and arena quality to promote horse hoof health and the overall well being of the horses. As you drive through the automatic gate, a canopy of live oaks welcomes you to the farm. The long driveway is flanked by beautiful fenced pastures on the left and right. As you continue down the drive, you'll see the barn ahead on the left, the riding arena just past the barn on the left, and the caretaker's cottage straight back. Numerous raised flower beds adorn the perimeter of the barn and the driveway, and the perimeter of the cottage is beautifully landscaped and includes a raised vegetable/herb garden.
